What we offer for 7th – 12th grade

Sunday mornings we offer Sunday School classes for Junior High and High School ages.  The classes are in the Family Life Center and start at 10:30am lasting until 11:30am.

Sunday afternoons we have Youth Group for 7th-12th Grades.  During the school calendar we meet from 5:00 – 7:00pm.  Dinner is served and prepared by parents.  We have great fellowship with food, games and devotion time.

Wednesday evenings during the school year our church offers dinner at 5pm, free for children under 18.  After the meal, at 5:45, our youth meet for fellowship and learning in the Family Life Center youth room, and then join the adults in Chancel Choir rehearsal from 7:00 – 8:00 pm. During the summer, we participate in the district youth volleyball league.

Our youth participate in Mission work in the summer, raising money to travel out of state to serve the less fortunate of our country.  This is an integral part of our youth ministry at First Church.  Our youth also have a service project each month, when they serve our local community in some way.

The United Methodist Church operates camps in Arizona.  Our youth are encouraged to spend a week away at one of our many camp options each summer, and a Winter Camp. Camps can be viewed online at: www.dsccamps.org.

Our youth group has a great time at church, in mission work and with many fun activities! If you are interested in joining the First Church youth, please contact our Youth Director at youth@firstchurchofmesa.com.
